Carol R. says, "I am an adult student and have been taking lessons from Maureen at Ride Music for about 5 years now. Truly enjoying the experience and I have learned a great deal. Maureen is a patient and inventive teacher. I particular love the small group classes. They're fun and I find I learn more in a group lesson than in a private lesson, which I didn't expect. Highly recommend Ride Music Studio." Read more

I gained my piano training and music education in Taiwan (BM) and Japan (MM) and have been teaching for 25 years, currently in Cupertino, Santa Clara and Mountain View. I love the opportunity to share my love of music and to inspire students to achieve their best. I use the music exams of the MTAC and ABRSM and enter students for several competitions as additional motivation. My students have ranged from ages 4-18, many of them competition prize winners and gaining the highest honors in exams. I see piano lessons as an opportunity not only to excel in music but to improve learning skills in general and add to their quality of life.

How much do classical piano lessons cost?

How long must you take piano lessons to play classical?

You must take piano lessons for 1 to 2 years with consistent practice to play simple classical pieces. Some people can make faster progress if they practice more often or have prior musical experience.
